New Old Boots

 Looking through my winter wardrobe 
I was lacking a pair of really good brown boots

I did have though a pair of light tan boots that I really liked 
but didn't seem to wear as often as I might simply because 
well, light tan isn't the boot I want to put on every day 
so out came the implements

Good shoe brushes
and good polish 
(I recently learned that you set the polish alight for a moment
which makes it turn liquid and solves the crumbly problem)
a little elbow grease 
and my tan boots 
were transformed to a beautiful pair of brown boots that 
I have worn non stop 
and didn't spend a cent on 
I particularly like the way the brown polish caught 
in the seams


  1. What a good idea; they look ever so chic.

  2. Yes! One of my favorite tricks ... So far, I've resurrected a purse and a pair of boots. Yours look great and the DIY satisfaction is hard to beat.

  3. Great idea and I am going to be following suit! They turned out amazing....

  4. Those are beautiful leather boots. Were you convinced they would turn out like this, or did you take a risk?
    Will the polish alone keep them permanently dark brown?

    Wear them in good health


  5. Took a bit of a risk .......but I have been know to do that
    I think they should wear ok
    I will let you know
    Kathy thats a great idea ... will try a purse next
